It’s 3:30am and I really should be sleeping but I am not. I am not in bed for two reasons: I don’t have to go to work tomorrow and the demo for Skate 2 just arrived on the Xbox Live Marketplace less than two hours ago. The video you see above is from the demo itself. Even though I’ve played through the demo about a dozen times at work, I still wanted to play it on my own console at home. It always weird to play the game you’ve worked on at home for the first time. You get the sense you should be seeing these images while at your desk at the studio but instead you’re at home in your underwear.
Anyways, the demo still plays great. I’m really happy with how the game turned out and I believe we made a quality title that gamers will truly enjoy. So far, initial impressions of the demo have been quite good. Just in the last hour I’ve done a quick read through some of the message boards and feedback has been nearly all positive.
You can download the demo right now on the Xbox Live Marketplace. For PS3 owners out there, I am sorry but you’ll have to wait an extra week before it hits the PSN. If you’re curious about what I’ve been working on for the last year and a half, please grab the demo, I think you’ll have lots of fun!
